The Lego movie

The Lego Movie

The wicked Lord Business (Will Ferrell) is determined to destroy the Lego universe and rebuild it using glue – which goes against the very nature of Lego. Mistaken as the ‘Special’, the only surviving Master Builder, the rather ordinary Emmet (Chris Pratt) is selected to lead a group of figures on a mission to put a stop to Lord Business’s evil plan.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson directs this comedy set in 1920s Europe starring Ralph Fiennes as a hotel concierge who finds himself mixed up in the search for a valuable Renaissance painting.

Noah

Biblical epic directed by Darren Aronofsky and starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins. The film tells the story of Noah (Crowe), the last of the pre-flood Patriarchs.

The Book Thief

Academy Award-nominated adaptation of the popular novel by Marcus Zusak starring Emily Watson, Geoffrey Rush and Sophie Nélisse. The film tells the story of Liesel Meminger (Nélisse), an eccentric young girl who is adopted by working class German couple Hans and Rosa Hubermann (Rush and Watson) as World War II looms. When Jewish refugee Max (Ben Schnetzer) arrives at the family’s door they risk their own safety to shelter him from the Nazis.

Need for Speed

High-octane action starring Aaron Paul. Framed for manslaughter by his wealthy ex-partner Dino (Dominic Cooper), mechanic Tobey Marshall (Paul) is unjustly sent to prison for two years. Upon his release, he sets out to gain revenge by rejoining the underground racing scene.

Escape from Planet Earth

Children’s animated adventure featuring the voice talents of Brendan Fraser, Rob Corddry and William Shatner.

On planet Baab, Gary Supernova (voice of Corddry) is head of mission control at the Baabian Aeronautics and Space Administration (BASA), while his younger and more charismatic brother Scorch (Fraser) is the planet’s most famous astronaut.

The brothers are completely different, and even Gary’s son Kip (Jonathan Morgan Heit) favours his uncle over his father. However, when a failed rescue mission results in Scorch being held captive on planet Earth at the infamous Area 51 by Agent Shanker (Shatner), it’s left up to Gary to save the day.
